Question about Washing Machines
Our LG Intellowasher 7Kg washing machine is very unbalanced. I can rebalance it using the retractable feet on the washing machine at the front but the feet do not have locking nuts on them and so during the wash (and the spin cycle in particular) the feet height adjusts - particularly on one side> The result is that the machine moves around very violently. should the feet have locking nuts or am i mising something? Is there a solution
Many thanks, Duncan
Never heard of that; I would try a new door latch as I have never had a bad control issue with the operation of the door latch. There is no real way to test it. I can getb you the latch if interested. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

There are 2 things you can do.
All washing machines have an off balance shut off, some are touchy, some let it run around the house. With wht machine empty, lean it towards you, on the 2 front feet, about 2 or 3 inches and let it drop. The self leveling feet in the rear must BOTH make good floor gontact and sometimes, just the weight of the machine will not adjust them. The other thing is, make sure the load is evenly distributed. Coats, blankets, small rugs etc. are very heavy when wet and they tend to throw all of the weight to one side.
There is no screw holding the yub in place. It hangs on the center post, where the agitator goes. There is however, what's called a snubber. It is a rubber device that looks like a flattened suction cup, that comes in contact with the tub. It helps keep the tub from jumping around too much.

Error SE is a sensor problem as per LG support.
you need to change the senser of your machine...

I have this problem and have been told the following.
You have to take 2 Cir clips off. one on the front which is achievable by opening up the spring that holds it in place. The second one is behind the front panel.
You need to take the top off first. Undo two screws on the back top. Then you can take the top off. Then take any detergent tray our and also the front control panel. Then you gain access to some screws which hold the front panel onto the chassis.
After you take the front panel off you can apparently access the rear cir clip and spring.
once this is removed you can remove the front seal for replacement.

What's the exact model of your washing machine? I'll need this to get you exact part numbers.
If you're looking for a quick and cheap fix that works. Try installing a rubber anti-vibration pad under the washer. I've had the best luck with a pad called Silent Feet. They are pretty hard to find in stores but Amazon.com carries the full line of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads. They will provide you with the best results short of replacing the full shock isolation assembly in the washer. And they cost a lot less.
